Jeannette Kuo, Founding Partner, Karamuk Kuo Architects, presents the lecture "Possible Futures" at 6:00 p.m. at Farish Gallery, Anderson Hall, Rice University, as part of the Rice Architecture and Rice Design Alliance 2019 Fall Lecture Series.
Jeannette Kuo is co-founding partner of Zurich-based Karamuk Kuo Architects and Assistant Professor-in-Practice of Architecture at Harvard Graduate School of Design. Her research and work focus on the intersection of structures, space, and culture. From multi-unit housing to cultural infrastructures like the Augusta Raurica Archaeological Center, the work of the office spans across scales and typologies, each time looking for spatial and conceptual opportunities within the constraints of reality.
Recent built works include the International Sports Sciences Institute in Lausanne and the Weiden Secondary School.
Publications include the two-volume research on workspace typologies: A-Typical Plan (2013) and Space of Production (2015), as well as the recent El Croquis 161 monograph on Karamuk Kuo.
This lecture series is made possible through the generous support of the Betty R. and George F. Pierce Jr., FAIA, Fund, and by grants from the City of Houston through the Texas Commission for the Arts.
Rice Design Alliance is an AIA/CES Registered Provider of quality educational programs. For each lecture, attendees will earn one Learning Unit.
